Our advice is that you should plan and maintain a structured timetable and limit the amount of screen-time. Include some reading, writing and maths every day, but be realistic about how much time your child should spend ‘working’ (and definitely try not to get stressed if things don’t workout how you expect!). There are a number of online daily activities you could build your timetable around (some listed below) but do make time for creativity, child-led activities (projects/research/own interest), and play.
Jo Wicks workouts (live on Youtube at 9am but available afterwards); Diverse Dance 10 mins dance workouts (Facebook Live at 1.30pm)
Carol Vorderman maths (10am and currently free to join)
David Walliams elevenses
cooking with Jamie Oliver
music with Mylene Klass
Harold the giraffe from the LifeEd Bus has his own daily diary
I’m sure there will be many more of these to follow…
There are free audio stories on David Walliams site, and at audible. Free ebooks at Oxford Owl. (We are planning how best to get replacement reading books from the school library home.)
Your teachers will put up weekly activities on their Class Home-Learning pages:
Year 1 | Year 2 | Year 3 | Year 4 | Year 5 (look at Year 6 page for additional English ideas)| Year 6 [year 6 maths & computing]
Most of the activities will be reviewing and consolidating work already done by your child this year. However, we are working now on how we will deliver the remainder of this year’s curriculum if the closure continues after Easter.
There are some excellent STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) activities specifically created for home-learning here.
These documents are full of ideas for music learning at home: reception | years 1 & 2 | years 3 – 6 (thank you to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Poole for these).
If you are desperate for worksheets, these have been prepared by another Multi-Academy Trust and may form part of our provision in the event of future closing; they are part of the Learning Project for Parents.
